BILT ANZ 2020 – COVID-19 Update

To the BILT ANZ Community,

It will come as no surprise that COVID-19 has and will impact DBEI events in 2020.  Like many of you, our team has been monitoring what is a rapidly changing situation for some weeks now. We felt it was time to communicate with you and be transparent about our position.

The timing of BILT ANZ 2020 in mid-to-late June means it may yet need to be postponed or cancelled. At this point, we are monitoring and responding to governmental and health authority advice, as well as exploring alternative ways we can still provide value to our community, beyond that which relies on physical presence.

Our events team, RTC Events Management, based in Sydney, has adopted the social distancing measures endorsed by the Australian Government and is now working remotely for the foreseeable future.

Current projections of how long COVID-19 will impact social interactions vary, and we remain optimistic that we can proceed. We very much want to be able to run BILT ANZ 2020 as planned, but as the situation is still evolving, we will hold off on any decisions related to postponement or cancellation for a further two weeks.

We understand that uncertainty is not easy to deal with, but be assured that the safety and well-being of our community both local and global is of utmost importance to DBEI.

Thank you for your continued support of BILT ANZ and DBEI. As a not-for-profit community organization, we truly appreciate your patience and understanding and will be in touch again in the coming weeks.

Sincerely, Chris Needham,
BILT ANZ Chair

COVID-19 Update

13th March 2020

DBEI is closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. Having already postponed our BILT Asia event (2-4 April, Singapore), we are hopeful our remaining 2020 events will proceed.  However, the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. We will continue to be guided by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and local health and government authorities in each region.

Our team and Committees are working hard to plan for contingencies should the need arise.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.
